Stick with me here: imagine you are swimming in the ocean. You go out further into the sea and get caught by the waves. You go around and around in the tide, and every time you swim to the surface you get caught into another wave. You are clawing to the surface for air, but cannot reach it. Now, picture that suffocating feeling happening to you every other day or everyday. If you can then you have a glimpse into part of the life of a person who is suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. CF is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States have CF. As many of you know, my son Eli is one of the CF fighters.
The foundation has 125,000 people participating every year in walks across the country to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research and drug development. The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. Because of the foundation's work great strides have been made. In the 1980s people with CF were expected to live to 14 years old, but with the medical advantages we have today, the life expectancy is 57 years old
Every day I'm getting closer to reaching my fundraising goal of $10000. You can help me reach that goal by making a donation on Eli’s behalf today. It only takes a second and your gift has the power to change lives for the better.
